Madeline Marshall, Amplifier Athletics Editor

One of the few seniors to work on The Amplifier all four years of high school, Madeline

Marshall has a passion for journalism that started at a young age. She had an excellent role

model to look up to. “I was inspired by my aunt and have grown up watching her as a news

anchor on TV,” Marshall said. Her aim to follow in her aunt’s footsteps landed her the Athletics

Editor’s position on The Amplifier’s staff.

 

With college less than a year away, Marshall has yet to make up her mind on her final

destination. “I was having a panic attack because I don’t know where I’ll be next year,” Marshall

said. If she had to choose right now though, she would probably go to Gonzaga University.

“Wherever I end up, I see myself doing some kind of broadcast journalism,” Marshall said.

 

After college, Marshall wants to follow her aunt’s legacy and continue journalism. “I want

to eventually be a sideline reporter and either a sports anchor or an athletic media administrator

for a professional or college program,” Marshall said. She enjoys watching and talking about

college sports because she grew up around it in her life.

 

Marshall has developed close relationships with the staff members and will be missed

when she graduates. Marshall said, “My favorite thing about Amplifier is the people because we have a really good relationship and work really well together. We are like a family,”
